It has been 5 years since Biotech Express was started with a notion to unite scattered Biotech academia and industry when there was no source of Indian news and information for academicians, scientists and industrialists. In August 2013 the first issue of Biotech Express was released and at that time our main focus was entirely to cover Academia and research of Biotech, so we started with the very basic topic of Model organisms in Biological research because no experiment can be completed without having starter culture. So in 12 issues we covered model organisms from smallest to largest which are widely used and important for research. Similarly the next volume came up with the information about top deadly diseases.
In between we also Interviewed some great people who are idol for Biologists and knowledge of whose
experiences might benefit the others. This magazine provided one stop source for all information from starting and after 2nd Volume BEM diversified in its news reporting. So many changes were incorporated like an Advisory and Editorial Board was constituted of academic, research and industry people who would provide guidance toward the content selection and writing, new sections were introduced in magazine like Views, News analysis etc., industry news were started to come as main section in magazine and many otthers.
After Volume 3rd BEM started to incorporate news and views in the form of articles on current topics pertaining to Govt., research, industry and society, like GST, top journals, major events, and current affairs.
Two people will always be remembered with the name of Biotech Express, these are Prof. Kambadur Muralidhar (also the 1st subscriber) and Prof Ashok Pandey (Founder of BRSI). Biotech Express could not
succeed without the valuable advices of these two people specially but contributions of many people to
make this happen cannot be ignored. Now Biotech Express has become single ultimate source of Biotechnology news .
In this special article we are showing our journey of news reporting by showing major news, articles,
events people that became part of the content of this magazine.
